Description

Anna's Chromodoris (Chromodoris annae) is a very popular nudibranch in the Indo-West-Pacific region, mainly due to its wonderful colouration. However, it's commonly misidentified or confused with other species, such as Loch's Chromodoris (Chromodoris lochi), Coleman's Chromodoris (Chromodoris colemani), and sometimes even Willan's Chromodoris (Chromodoris willani).
